Since when was cork and flip the same?
This is perhaps a worse phenomenon in snowboarding, but I notice it on the ski side, too! Especially in the media!
People are landing more new triples at the time, and the headline reads "New tripplecork", and with the article follows a movie without a single cork, but with that now, Jørn Simen Aabøs Tripple frontside RODEO!
Last year, Torstein Horgom won x games (2011) with tripplecork, which was actually a triple backflip 180, or not to mention Tom Wallish Dew Tour runs which consists of more than just corks!
I also notice when I follow the slopestyle competition on TV, skiing and snowboarding, that all double flips are called cork, regardless of whether the athlete pulls the flip sideways, forwards or backwards!
As if that's not enough, I also see pretty corks that can only bereferred to as a simple spin, "nice 900, 1080 etc" (but he should have dipped his head benith his body once or twice, judges like that!) something that seems quite contradictory.
This is gonna get so much worse in the olympics as well!
How hard can it be to hire a reporter who can name the tricks, or find someone in each case bothered to do a reserch?
Does this anoy you as well, or don't you think it matters?
